‘The Kill Team’ Clip

When Private Adam Winfield, a 21-year-old soldier in Afghanistan, witnessed members of his platoon murder innocent civilians (planting weapons on the corpses to make it appear as though they were terrorists), he attempted to alert the military to these heinous war crimes with the help of his father. But Winfield’s pleas went unheeded. Left on his own and with threats to his life, Private Winfield was himself drawn into the moral abyss, forced to make a split-second decision that would change his life forever.

With extraordinary access to the key individuals involved in the case – including Private Winfield, his passionately supportive parents, and Winfield’s startlingly candid compatriots in the so-called “Kill Team” — Krauss expertly constructs a balanced and nuanced look at the personal stories so often lost inside the larger coverage of the longest war in US history.
